MIT team unveils new solar car

MITs Solar Electric Vehicle Team, the oldest such student team in the country, unveiled its latest high-tech car on Friday, Feb. 27 in Lobby 13.

The new vehicle, Eleanor, is equipped with wireless links so lead and chase vehicles will be able to monitor every aspect of the cars electrical performance in real time. Its batteries have enough energy, when fully charged, to get the car from Boston to New York City without need of sunlight.
